Moved in

Ok, we’ve moved. Thanks to the helpful horde, from truck arriving in Newtown to truck leaving from Brooklyn was two and a half hours, which must be some kind of record for the amount of stuff we had. So cheers, all. Got the final tip run done a day early and I can now bring to work a brain that’s capable of thinking about work, not house.

House currently lacks… lots. Hot water should be on by the end of today, but there’s scaffolding in the main room, a ladder in the bath, lots of plastering to do, internal doors to hang, a pump to wire up, and the bedroom still holes to the outside and an unpainted ceiling. When there’s a tarp just outside the bedroom window and the wind is gusting overnight to 130 then you can understand why we didn’t get much sleep last night.

Oh, and the internet’s not working, it’s complaining about DHCP, which confuses me coz Telstra uses static IPs. I dunno.

But still, we’re in and can relax a little.

  1. Yay house! A bit less yay about the lack of hot water and ladder in the bath, but yay you’re in! Let me know when you want to get moving on the plastering. But make sure you do actually take time to appreciate being IN the house, if you know what I mean.

  2. Hey, congratulations!

    [BTW, static IPs can use DHCP and often do. It gets the address on bootup just as for a DHCP server, it’s just associated with your account/MAC/line and doesn’t change. Otherwise, you have to make sure your IP matches the allocated one manually.]

  3. Congratulations!! I am sad I could not assist more beforehand or with your move, but if you need helps any Sundays or Mondays coming up in the next couple of months let me know – alternatively, I may have the odd Saturday off here and there 🙂
